Design Printing - Green Statistics

Print gives private landowners a financial incentive to renew forests rather than convert land for other purpose such as agriculture or development. Most of the new wood fiber used to produce paper comes from ‘tree farms’ where trees are a crop similar to wheat or broccoli.

Print uses Waste:

33% of paper comes from woodchips and sawmill scraps; another 33% comes from recycled paper.

Print is Recycled:

In 2009 63.4% of all paper used in the US was recycled and this number increases each year.
